Marc Webb has been announced to be returning to direct "Amazing Spider-Man 2."

In addition, Andrew Garfield has been confirmed to return as Spider-Man as well.

We get the news from the Amazing Spider-Man Facebook.

JUST ANNOUNCED: Andrew Garfield and Marc Webb will return to make the sequel to THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN! Make sure to 'SHARE' this exciting news with all of your friends!

It was a given that Andrew Garfield would reprise as Peter Parker, but Marc Webb's return was questionable. Scenes from the Amazing Spider-Man were re-shot and, reportedly, the studio wasn't happy with Webb. 

We were actually told Len Wiseman was named to direct "Amazing Spider-Man 2," but turns out Wisemen is directing The Mummy with Amazing Spider-Man 2 writers Bob Orci and Alex Kurtzman.

Amazing Spider-Man did make a bundle at the box office, over $600 million, so it looks like things with Sony and Webb have been worked out.

Assuming our source was at least half right, look for "Amazing Spider-Man 2" to be much more action-packed. We were also told the title was tentatively named "Web of Spider-Man."

Emma Stone is currently in talks to return as well.
